    HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY!

    We have a pot luck at lunch today so I'm excited to eat some lunch!


    I can't believe tomorrow I'll be 8 weeks. This last week at least has gone by farily quickly. Usually the weeks seem to drag on. I think it's at 9 weeks that embryo becomes a fetus so that's a pretty cool milestone.

    Doctor appt is in 13 days! YAY...less than 2 weeks!

    I keep forgetting to try the doppler that I got, we tried to find the heartbeat at like 7 weeks, 2 days but couldn't...I didn't freak out though, I knew it was just too early. We'll try again today and then every couple days until I can find it. Should be able to hear it by 9 weeks...and by that time it'll be doc appt day so I won't even have start freaking out.


    Um I've only thrown up a total of 2 times, though the dry heaving/gagging is becoming a little more of a common occurence. While I HATE throwing up, it does make me feel a little bit better after doing it.

    I think the sickness is dying down a little bit also...I still feel pretty sickly most of the day but still not nearly as intense as Kylie's was.

    DCR-Canteloupe!! I had some yesterday and I cut up a whole half of one for breakfast, mmm so good!

    Still gaining weight like a mad woman and I'm afraid I won't even look prego till like halfway because I'll be so fat by that time. BUT I'm not going to dwell on it. When I get a little bit of courage, motivation and strength I will start walking again and try swimming also maybe once a week. Plus when the sickness dies down a bit and I don't feel like I constantly have to put food in my mouth I hope it will even out a bit.

    nothing new going on...Oh except my nips are finally pretty sensitive. Not as much as i've heard from other people but when clothes rub them the wrong way or a tight hug is given....trust me....I CAN FEEL IT!

    Default March 19th 8 weeks, 1 day

    TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! It's the BIG 2-7! Seems old to me for some reason.

    Happy Birthday to me, hee hee!

    Random thought: I for some reason now think it's weird that we celebrate a birthday the way we do, really instead of spoiling and congratulating a child on their birthday, shouldn't we actually be congratulating the parents? To think of the struggles that my mom could have gone through to conceive me and be pregnant with me and go through labor and raise me. LOL...really what did I do? Nothing. I didn't even ask to be here, my parent's wanted me and poof, thanks to them, I have a life.

    So today on MY birthday, I would like to thank my mom for putting up with everything she did with me and still loving me. I miss you every day mom! XOXO


    Alright so LOTS of throwing up going on lately....twice yesterday and once already today. So I guess morning time, even though I have been trying to scarf down a rice cake right when I wake up in the morning hasn't really been helping. Oh well....for some reason I just like keeping track of all the times I puke. I think the tally is up to 5, maybe 6

    A somewhat new thing also is that I'm having a hard time figuring out what sound's good to eat. Nothing actually sounds appetizing to me right now. Which is really weird for me because even non prego Jen loves food! We'll just have to wait and see how that pans out.

    Oh and I hit the 8 week mark yesterday. Very exciting stuff. Baby Boo is now 1 inch in length! Woo hoo!! My placenta is just starting to form and take over the hormones of Boo, so by 12 weeks hopefully it will be fully performing and I'll get not only some energy back but some motivation and will feel better also.

    Boo's space was updated with pics of my growing belly and seriously, it is growing already. It's alarming.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Omg, you are so right about the whole birthday thing... I totally agree!! It seems that even with some puking here and there it isn't as bad as with Kylie. Every time I saw you during that pregnancy you had a bag in your hands hoping not to have to puke in it, right? Either way.. it sucks to have to puke anytime. You've been such a good sport about it though! That is so hard when nothing sounds good to eat, but you want to eat something... such a weird feeling. Your growing belly is so cute, looking good! I can't believe how ripped you were in your BFP pic, you're so good about getting motivated and working your butt off (literally)! Can't wait to see more and more pics throughout the pregnancy and watch little Boo keep growing! XOXO

    Default March 30, 9 weeks 5 days

    Wow....I haven't been on in over a week to update! YIKES!

    So much to talk about, almost all of it positive...I'll start with the yucky so I can move on to bigger and better things.

    The sickness...might be killing me. Seriously. No, I know it's not but sometimes I just feel a-w-f-u-l. Even writing it now makes me feel so ungrateful and horrible but morning sickness is not fun. Not one bit. Especially since it's not really MORNING sickness. Its still an ALL day, constantly nauseas, dizzy, vomity, disgusting, nothing sounds good, keep eating, gaggy feeling that no matter what I do will not go away.
    I know that what I'm feeling is AMAZING, I know it means I'm pregnant and that my baby is growing by leaps and bounds daily and I wouldn't change it for the world but I'm not going to lie about it (today anyways)...its a horrid feeling.

    I've been throwing up pretty regularly, every day sometimes twice a day, the difference this time around is that sometimes its like a violent throw up where it actually hurts my throat and comes at such force out of my body I think I might be throwing myself across the room and I need to hold on for dear life not to fall into the toilet (or barf bag, sink, trash can or whatever it is I can get to that's close enough to puke in at the time) and the "good" feeling after I throw up, seems to only last about 15-20 minutes until I get all sicky feeling again.

    oh and after I throw up, everything I swallow for like half an hour after that has a sugary taste way in the back of my throat....it kind of burns....very weird. Anyone have experience with that before or know what it is?

    I can't drink anything. Water, juice, soda, tea....nada...any liquid in my mouth.....ugh....just thinking about it....*gag*, I've been eating ice chips trying to stay hydrated because I know sipping on an 8 oz glass of water throughout each day.....probably not cutting it. and the ice chips are at least solid in my mouth.


    So onto the good stuff. My lil brother Josh was with me all week, which is the main reason I've had no time to update. That and we also got a blizzard and I've been working at home for a few days so that threw my routine all off. We did LOTS of fun stuff while Josh was here. I haven't told him I'm pregnant again, I'm not sure how much 9 year old's "understand" about loss and such. He asked me one day while he was here If "I'll ever get a baby again that doesn't die". I smiled at him because while it may have come off insensitive I knew he was just asking if I was going to have a baby. I told him "yes, that it took a little bit of time after a baby dies to get a mom's body back to normal and her ready to have another baby", he seemed to get it and asked how old my baby would be if she didn't die, I told him just about a month old, he just looked at me. Which is why I don't think kids quite get it and while I'm thnking VERY positively about this lil boo, IF something did happen with this pregnancy and I would have to tell him again that it died...I'm not sure he'd get it time and time again so I'm going to wait quite some time before sharing my news with him.
    ANYWAYS...we had a blast, went to the zoo, the aquarium, saw a movie, had a BBQ, played some nintendo, had a picnic....it was AWESOME and I miss him already. I can't wait till my child is old enough to run around like he does and express itself the way he does. I could just talk to him for hours.

    Ok so SUPER EXCITING news:

    at 8 weeks, 6 days....I found Boo's heartbeat on our home doppler. It took like an hour ( and by that I mean like 5 minutes) but it seemed like an eternity but about in the middle of my belly, wayyy down by the plevic bone, I finally found it! I've found it twice more since that day and tried to video it so I could post it here but I forgot the camera at home, so we'll see how vid's do on here later. I can not tell you what a relief it is to wake up or feel worried for any reason and pull out the doppler for a 5 minute "swoosh, swoosh" session!!!!

    Some other big news......is that at 9 weeks, our BOO graduated to FETUS and the placenta has started to form! YAY for fetus's!

    Umm lastly would be our appt today. It was actually considered our first routine OB appt. So had I not had any previous blood draw's or ultrasound, today would be the first time my OB would have seen me. I was weighed but didn't even look, I'm going off my own scale since I weigh in once a month in the mornings and I don't need to be reminded of what a cow I am. I got to pee in a cup and answer a few questions but because I had so recently done all of it with my last pregnancy, they just asked if anything had changed.....which it hadn't. There was some discussion about doing the dreaded pap smear since by the time I give birth it will be over a year since my last, but my doc let me slide since I've never had an abnormal result and I did just have one in July. WHEW.....dodged that one....I HATE PAPSMEARS!

    So the awesome part....we got another ultrasound!!!

    Our lil boo is so huge! It is TOTALLY amazing to me how much thry grow in there. Seriously from the last time like 20 days ago or so that we saw our little bean until today....wow! It's like tripled in size from 1/2 cm to nearly 3 (CRL that is, in real life its already over an inch, they just don't measure it that way). Still though.

    I didn't see the heart beating right away but when the doc pointed out the flickering on the screen, I again began to cry. I openly admit here I think I've lost all control over my emotions already and I don't care. I can cry or scream at the drop of a hat. Sorry, I also have a tendancy to ramble on these days. Ok so the doctor was able to get a heartbeat to record also and it measured at 164bpm (beats per minute)....such a strong healthy litttle heart our boo has! She took a pic of it too. The baby just looks like a blob but you can see the heartbeat on the screen and the measurement!!


    And then she moved the "probe" just a bit and we saw Boo MOVING AROUND. his/her little flippers were doing a little dance in there, almost wacving to us. It was the first time I've seen movement on the ultrasound, even at Kylie's 17 week one, I never saw her hands or feet moving....but this little one was SO active.


    Baby's head is down but just for ease since I know these things are kind of hard to see I pointed out a few lil things!


    Measurements, heartbeat, everything was AMAZING. next appt is April 24th at 9:30am. I think that one will just be a doppler appt but I'll be 14 weeks and I'm *HOPING* I can talk my doc into doing our gender scan 4 weeks later at 18 weeks instead of waiting till 22 weeks, since my appts are 4 weeks apart now. *fingers crossed*

    Oh and I changed my gender prediction....again.....I don't think I ever even mentioned what I thought it was but I was thinking BOY. Now all of a sudden after being sick like I was with Kylie and hearing the fast heartbeat and having a dream full of girls clothes....I think maybe GIRL now I think my indecisiveness or ability to "predict" a gender just really means I SERIOUSLY DO NOT CARE WHAT IT IS, as long as it's healthy and safe!

    I'm off for the day!

    Default March 31, 9 weeks 6 days

    So I went back and read my old journal up until where I am now with Boo anyways. I have to say, I'm so glad I kept a journal last time and this one. Just to be able to compare the 2 and actually recall feelings and when things got worse or better or experienced something. Just sooo neat.

    I read this journal also and I haven't been doing a very good job at NOT complaining this time.

    A few things I wanted to mention from the appt yesterday also.

    I brought up if I would be monitored differently this time because of the loss and the MTHFR but she said I wouldn't from this point on anyways as long as things are looking good and going well. The cerefolin I'm taking for MTHFR and the baby aspirin for blood clot issues will hopefully solve any porblems and she doesn't seem too concerned.

    I forgot to mention to her about my concern for going passed 40 weeks, but obviously I have plenty of time and for now I'm still working through milestone by milestone.


    Um a few other symptoms: my nose is clogged. I feel like I'm getting sick because I blow it so much but there doesn't seem to be any other sickness. So I'm assuming its prego related.

    Also I think I'm going to start reading "what to expect" again. I haven't touched a pregnancy book so far because obviously I already overanalyze everything but I think for me to read up on a few things and maybe prepare for the future will be nice.

    Um cravings-again nothing is really sounding all that great. I actually would love to chug down some water but when I try, I get all sickly feeling. Sooo for now its ice chips still. LOL and maybe Chicken, chicken is sounding kind of good.


    oh and the sleeping issue, I'm still having trouble not only falling asleep but staying asleep and feeling well rested. I know it's normal though, but I am pretty darn tired these last couple days.

    Um next appt is is 24 days! YAY and I think I have decided to tell our family at Easter. I'll be 11 weeks 4 days and close enough to the 12 week mark. I think nobody else will know till like 14-16 weeks though still. I'm fine with just the friends that do know, knowing for now. It's simple this way.


    OH and I was looking at belly pics from my last pregnancy...My goodness I swear I look 16 weeks prego already my 9 week pic looks just like my 16 week with Kylie. Though I did start off 7 lbs heavier this time and in much worse shape (not just weight wise).....I'm not stressing about it, not going to worry about it for now. I'm just mentioning it.

    Oh tomorrow is 10 weeks....double digit weeks are AWESOME!

    I'll update with belly pics tomorrow! WOOOOO HOOOOO

    Hope your "morning" sickness lightens up a bit. Your strength still amazes me. Can't wait to see your belly pic, I think you look great!

    Default April 1, 2009 10 WEEKS!

    Happy 10 weeks baby birthday!!!

    We're in double digits!

    10 weeks down, 30 to go!

    we are 1/4 of the way there! YAY!!!!!!!

    I'm very excited about today and reaching this point, no real milestones I'm just happy about it in general, 10 weeks sounds AWESOME!!!!

    Ok so I updated Boo's space with my pics, I woke up late so I had to put a different pair of pants on because I was sleeping in just a tshirt, so I'm ticked that my pants won't be the same in all of them but ehhhh whatever!!! I like the PINK anyways. LOL


    oh and very cool new thing here......

    I got video last night of listening to Boo's heartbeat. (s)he was def not cooperating and kept moving around every time I would find it but for this vid, it was perfect!

    The picture sucks because I was trying to get the camera close enough to the doppler to pick up the sound, turns out, you can hear it just fine. It's the "dog panting" (as Dion calls it) sound heard throughout the video. At the end I move the doppler to pick up my heartbeat so you can hear how fast Boo's sounds compared to mine.

    I'm so glad I did this. I think it will be neat to look back on!



    I had a pretty good day yesterday. No puking except in the morning and I read through all my old journal's and with Kylie this was about the point where I would have 1-2 good days, followed by 1-2 bad days. Even that right now I can handle and will be ok with.

    So far this morning I'm a big gaggy and icky but nothing overwhelming! Hopefully the day stays that way.

    This morning's craving.....Spaghetti!!! HA....I wish I had a stove here at work, I'd cook myself up some!

    Oh and I picked up an intelligender from the store yesterday. Probably won't do it till 13-14 weeks, and obviously we put literally NO stake in it since it said Boy for Kylie and she was clearly a girl....but still fun and something new to pee on!
